From an idyllic fairytale in Sweden
to a sea of roses in the Netherlands, and then straight to an unforgettable thousand-and-one-nights wedding with at least two-thousand-and-one candles in Marocco. And that pretty much sums up our last summer. The season of weddings a.k.a. our weddingcation.
And now we are next. Everything is going pretty (thank god for our wedding planner Lotte) well and (obviously) I already have my dress. This moment was one of the most special things I’ve experienced, because it is really true: when you know, you know. Whatever you might have in mind as ‘your’ dress, you can only know when you know. And that feeling when you see yourself in the mirror standing in your actual dress, is really special. Total cliche, I know…But I really hope whoever reads this will experience this some day and that’s why I summed up some amazing brands available in New York.
Alon Livne is a wonder child when it comes to bridal design and has worked for people like Alexander Wang and he was also the winner of the Israeli ‘Project Runway.’ Glamourous and refined. And it has a bit of sex appeal too, but not too much. Find his designs at the Mark Ingram Atelier, a very chic boutique in the Upper East Side alongside big names like Oscar de la Rente and Jenny Packham.
Paris meets New York at Delphine Manivet. Her designs are super elegant, dreamy and timeless. Her motto is “the dress should be a girl’s only make-up” so I’m sure you understand that Delphine’s designs are truly beautiful.
Crowned the “Best Anti-Bridezilla Bridal Showroom in New York” by The New York Times. Stone Fox is known for their flower wreaths, bohemian brides in fluttering silk gowns and vintage veils. As they say: ‘No fluff, no puff,’ just ‘insanely cool.’ And I can’t help but agree.
Daughters of Simone is a true nirvana for bohemian brides. Romantic vintage with a touch of rebellion. Run by two sisters who were raised by the ultimate “flower children.” Perfect if you’re looking for a less traditional dress.
L’Fay is more in line with places like Kleinfeld and Saks. And although I was planning on avoiding these kinds of all-round stores, I couldn’t help but not drop by L’Fay. The reason? Berta Bridal. I am mesmerized by everything of theirs I come across. And I’m not the only one. They’ve got roughly 1,1 million followers on Instagram, making Berta one of the most popular bridal Insta’s. The lace, the sexy vibe… Oh Berta how you thrill me. And in New York only available at L’Fay.
